Then large quantities of fat weregiven for nine days more with the puipose of demonstrating the change whichwas expected to follow in the cholesterol content of the blood and bile. In thefinal period the lipoid content of the diet was again diminished to mini-mum amounts. Chart 2 is a graphic representation of the ])ost-operative daily variationsof the blood content of cholesterol. At the time of operation the patient wasapparently in an hypercholesterolemic crisis as shown by the abnormally largeamount of cholesterol in the blood. Within the week following the operationand the institution of bile drainage, the cholesterol content of the blood fellquickly to the normal level. The fall to this low level in so short a time wasundoubtedly entirely due first to the character of the diet in which only mini-mum quantities of lipoid were permitted, and secondly to the

Benefits of Blueberries
– Blueberries are easy to freeze. They need no peeling, hulling, or pitting. Just place them into containers and put them in the freezer. The berries do not need to be washed until they are removed from the freezer.
– They contain vitamins A and C, and contribute iron, calcium, and potassium to the diet. Blueberries contain only 42 calories per 1/2 cup serving, are a good source of fiber, contain no cholesterol, and are very low in sodium.
– Blueberries are at the top of a list of 40 fruits, juices, and vegetables in antioxidant activity. Antioxidants have shown promise at reducing the risk of cancer.
For more information about blueberries, visit the North American Blueberry Council, U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council, and Michigan Blueberry Growers Association websites.

Talk about a great day.Sunday we went over to Maine with some friends. Our destination? A local sugar shack. The boys had a BLAST! And so did I. We hung out in the shack for a bit while watching the gentleman make maple syrup. We spent some time checking out the chicken coop where I learned about a breed of chicken that is supposed to produce lower cholesterol eggs.AND there was a brand new baby sheep. He was a cutie.I had so much fun it was crazy. We brought home some real 100% Maine Maple Syrup and I plan on using that in some cooking this spring here, and I wish Id gotten some more because I know its going to rock my socks off.The boys got a chance to learn about maple syrup, chickens, sheep, and a tiny bit about farming in general.Ive been thinking more and more about doing some chickens, after hanging out there for a while Im really starting to think that a few chickens would be good for the boys.This video was original
